There is no official tally, but I’d be willing to bet Wonderwheel Recordings ranks in the top 10 most-played labels at Sol Power events, which I honestly didn’t realize until peeping the track list for this Wonderwheel Catalog Mix. And I’m not talking about joints you put in your play crate for a month or two and then forget about — Wonderwheel releases have staying power. So many classics that never seem to wear out. And on this mix, DJ Nu-Mark proves, once again, he is among the best to do it. Homeboy puts in work with doubles, trick mixing and tasty scratches.
Our dude Cortega, who is in town from Nairobi, will be rockin with us Saturday night (along with the dude Joe L.). He’s been doing his Electrafrique parties throughout the African continent and we are pretty hyped he’ll be joining us. Here’s a taste of what to expect.
A beautiful day deserves beautiful West African sounds (with an apt title to boot). Check out this brand spakin new mix of some not so spankin new West African records, compiled by the one and only Voodoo Funk aka Frank Gossner. He’s been digging for and reissuing lost West African heat for years now, and this latest mix reveals some of his recently found treasures. His blog is a goldmine of mixes and stories about his travels and finds, so check that out too.

Quantic and his many many projects probably wins the award for “most played” in Sol Power sets. I wish wish wish he would come to the states with his Combo Bárbaro sometime…Check this fresh little video of them in action.
